“Modeling Icebergs”

Icebergs constitute roughly half of the mass (and freshwater) transferred from present-day ice sheets to the polar oceans. Yet, icebergs are only starting to be represented in climate models. In this talk I will review recent advances and persistent challenges in modeling the calving, drift, decay, and climate impacts of Arctic and Antarctic icebergs.

About this series: The PAOC Colloquium is a weekly interdisciplinary seminar series that brings together the whole PAOC community. Seminar topics include all research concerning the physics, chemistry, and biology of the atmospheres, oceans and climate, but also talks about e.g. societal impacts of climatic processes. The seminars take place on Monday from 12-1pm. Contact for more information and Zoom password.
